'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bruce Happy With Win Over Royals

Royals went out of the FA Cup tonight at St Andrews after going down to Birmingham City.

Despite hitting the woodwork twice, Reading lost to a Blues side who produced goals from Mickael Forssell and Julian Gray, either side of an equaliser from Steve Hunt.

Birmingham’s reward will be a trip to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke in the next round and their manager Steve Bruce was delighted to get the game won.

He said: 'I'm delighted for the young lads, it was a horrible night and the ball was swerving all over the place in atrocious conditions.

'It takes a little bit of time to settle, a few of them haven't played at this level.

'I thought the reaction was terrific after Reading equalised.'

Norwich City are the visitors to the Mad Stad tonight and Nigel Worthington will be hoping his side can pull off a shock result and put the Canaries back on the winning track.

""Adding: 'But I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Reading and got on well with the fans, so I hope that is shown on Sunday. I hope to get a nice reception, I gave my all for Reading and I hope there is a mutual appreciation from the supporters - there certainly is from my side.' "" DP
